Alabama-based rapper Chika is showing off her pride with Ed Sheeran’s hit song “Shape of You”.
The 20-year-old artist reinvented the hit single as a lyrically-stunning rap song in celebration of Pride Month. “Yo, let me tell you about Pride, struggle to survive/Living every day with your loving under fire,” she raps.
“And y’all repeat the rhetoric just like a class was taken/… and you were born a certain way and told you had to hate it,” she continues.
Her honest, heartfelt lyrics have drawn the attention of fans on social media. Chika’s video has been like over 11,000 times and retweeted almost 5,500 times as of this writing.
